Explore rolling green countryside and dramatic coastlines, or take afternoon tea in a stately home 

For those currently looking to holiday closer to home, we’ve introduced a brand new series of luxurious UK and Ireland holidays celebrating the richness within our own shores. Each carefully curated itinerary includes exclusive experiences with insider access and accommodation in some of the UK’s finest hotels.

Discover art, history and culture as you tour lands of medieval castles, thousand-year-old churches, world-renowned museums and enduring traditions. On an A&K holiday to the UK and Ireland, you will explore both the classic landscape as well as the lesser-known corners of our precious isles. You may think you know your home counties, but we beg to differ. 

Head straight to London, the cosmopolitan and bustling capital of the United Kingdom which offers a wealth of iconic sites, shops, restaurants and theatres. The surrounding countryside of Southern England has the contrasting country lanes, rolling hills and shimmering fenlands interspersed with historic cities such as Oxford, Cambridge and Bath. Follow the coast down to Cornwall for the picturesque towns and beaches. 

Further afield, Northern England and Wales boast moorlands and majestic National Parks. The largest park, the Lake District, incorporates a landscape of jagged mountains, shimmering lakes and charming villages. For the budding knight, Wales is known as ‘the land of castles’. 

Scotland is famed for the images of bagpipes and kilts, but there is more to the charming capital city Edinburgh and the windswept Highlands than this. From bustling food and art festivals to beautiful sea inlets and famous golf courses, you can discover the stately history of Scottish clans, historic to present.  

Finally, but not forgotten, the Emerald Isle. Dublin is the capital of Ireland and known for its Georgian architecture and lively nightlife scene. But if that’s not for you, instead enjoy the colourful villages dotted over the pastoral countryside that is home to a thriving dairy industry and many horse breeding farms. 

A breath of fresh air and adventure, right on your doorstep.
